Last summer I was all about the colored t-shirts. This summer I'm into white t-shirts and tanks. They are a perfect summer staple for several reasons:
1. White compliments a subtle summer tan perfectly
2. They're cheap (so they can be replaced when a little dingy)
3. They are a perfect top to nearly any bottom...so you really don't have to think about coordinating an outfit all that much
4. A white backdrop is ideal for showing off fun summer jewelry (perhaps from Twinkle Studio!)
I, of course, scoured the planet (ok really just the local mall, Target and Walmart) to find the best ones. Here's what I found:
This simple little v-neck from Target is $9. It washes up beautifully and the sizing is fairly true. I like the look of the v-neck with either several long, layered necklaces or a dainty little pendant.
This simple tank from Banana Republic is just the right amount of broken-in. The fabric is a bit sheer and the edges are soft. The racer back is cute, too! I got mine at the local Banana store for about $12. See how the necklace just pops!?
Forever 21 doesn't disappoint with a $5.50 tank that's luxe. The modal, cotton, and spandex mix is soft and holds it's shape beautifully. Plus it's long-length is very flattering. This photo doesn't do it justice! I like to top this off with very long necklaces.
While waiting for my new tires to be installed at Walmart I stumbled upon the new OP line of clothing there. It's all very California beachy (and teeny bopper). I picked up one of their burnout t-shirts. Note: the sizing of the OP line is INSANE. I got large in both of these (while at Banana I wear an XS). The lightweight tee was $4 in store when I bought it, but it's $2 on-line now. WOW! The photo Walmart's web site has is kinda crappy, so I won't bother with posting it.
What's your favorite way to wear a white tee or tank?
